Meat By Products

There is a lot of misinformation and concern regarding the understanding and use of meat-by-products.  In fact, the term itself is a misnomer since these by-products contain little to no meat. By-products are the part of the animal that is leftover after the meat has been stripped away from the bone for human consumption.

Chicken-by-products include:

  • Heart
  • Feet
  • Entails
  • Lungs
  • Spleen
  • Kidneys
  • Brain
  • Liver
  • Stomach 
  • Bones
  • Blood
  • Intestines 

And any part of the carcass that is not for human consumption.

Another reason for the concern over using this material is that there are parts used that the pet food industry would not like you to know about - such as abscesses and cancerous tissues.

Feeding this type of material to your pet increases the chances for cancers and degenerative diseases.  Our philosophy regarding ingredient sourcing follows the same rules as the human ingredient standards. If it is good enough for us to eat, then I believe that it is fine for our pets to eat too!

Raw Food Tip:

It is scary to have to question the validity of quality assurance statements on the packaging and it makes the general public question the research, and the marketing hype that is promoted on the various brands of heat processed pet food. Consumers are now finding out that the heat processing and extruded kibble diets are not as safe as originally promoted. Previous announcements and concerns from vets were only against the raw meat diets. The raw meat diets were the major stumbling blocks with many of the traditional vets because of the potential salmonella contamination. Isn’t it surprising that the recalls of many of the recent dry food manufacturers products have been triggered because of Salmonella contamination.
